    Assamese Short Film ‘Daybreak’ Wins Big At International Film Festival

    The 6 minutes film produced by Assam based production house-- Bapukon films bagged the Best Color Grading at the fest

    Assamese short film ‘Daybreak’ has won big at the recently concluded 4th Pune International Film Festival.  The 6 minutes film produced by Assam based production house– Bapukon films bagged the Best Color Grading at the fest.

    Directed by independent filmmaker, editor and writer from Guwahati, Puja Chakraborty, the movie highlights the monotony of life during old age. Life of a pensioner and a gamut fish eater who is struggling to live a fine life over budgetary constraints.

    The film stars renowned National award-winning actor ​Bishnu Kharghoria, ​award-winning actress Pratibha Choudhury ​and National School Of Drama alumnus​ Dhananjay Debnath ​in the lead. 

    “Sometimes the most important revelations come to us from the simplest of things. To me it happened when I left my corporate job and went back home one winter to live with my mother. And the place I come from is a land where people crave fresh fish from the river Brahmaputra every day. I realized the sentimentality associated with fish for my community, not just the feasting but also the economic and emotional part of the fish-eating culture that inspired me to write this story which turned it into a short film,” ​said Puja Chakraborty.

    ‘Daybreak’ has been officially selected in several prestigious film festivals across India including Bangalore International Short Film Festival 2019, Dadasaheb Phalke International Film Festival 2019, Chennai International Short Film Festival 2019.
